A knife trail? Well... that'd look... weird on the knife. But I'd say F12 for modding purposes.
What modding purposes? You can't change any of the trails :x

But f12 for the cosmetic improvement.

OBEY!!!

Yeah, improve the excitement of the knife
Then again, if hardcores see knife as a "silent" and "assassin-like" weapon (I personally have not seen one), then it'd put them off

I think a Knife trail would be cool, but only if thrown at maximum velocity... *goes to have a play*

I actually hated the fact that the knife is almost invisible on some maps, so I changed it so it has a red blade. Cant aim any better with it red tho LOL ;D.

Oh, and f11, I like the knife the way it is.

Yucks... that's real ugly (no offense). Even with a shinier and longer or even a slimmer trail it still won't look nice, because the speed of the knife is too low and when the knife flies, it is spinning. The trail effect would only look nice if the knife was flying straight and directly forward like a Barrett shot. Now it looks like gray grenades.

I'd still F12 for modding, but I'm against it as an actual graphic for the knife.

Ewww knife looks bad... sorry
Yeah STM1993 is right, due to the fact that the knife is spinning, the trail wouldn't work well
How about just making it shiny? No bullet trails?

When it's thrown, it flies straight. It only starts spinning when it hits something.

You mean, the knife, with it's realistic powers, spins, hit's the gravitational force of somebody's gostek and stops in mid air, inches from touching them, and falls on the ground.
